Skip's petitenessdoes not prevent her from making an ordin-

third floor front. The two Aliens — Skip and Kay — make a 
great pair at dancing, and especially at tight rope walking. 
They never fail to fall off and let us laugh!

Kit's good humor is only one of the many reasons why 
evervone likes her. When she and her roommate get together 
something funny is bound to happen. Have you ever heard 
Kit speak Spanish?" She's an expert at it, as we all learned 
from the Spanish plays.

Mary is one of our best all-round good sports. She is ah\ ays 
willing to work, which perhaps is the secret of her success 
with the Gargovles. Whether her ability as a hockey plaver ; 
her persuasion as a debater, or her powers as ringmaster, 
Mary's success is undisputed.

Any one who takes Senior Lit knows Bunny's abilitv to

Nancv is quite a linguist, as Madame Craig can assure you.

she has a weakness — perhaps it is her faith in beauty creams.

The good old days are gone for ever. Before, she used to

she is Madame Craig's pride and joy as the most fluent French

so ablv. Her charms have not gone unrecognized by our 
friends on the hill either, as you know if you have been in the 
"rec" room on Friday night.

Carol is our song leader, and we'll certainly say she's a 
wonder. Remember Bradford Day and Christmas carols, and 
all the other times she has labored with us? And she even 
made song practices pleasant with that smile of hers. Hawaii 
sent a wonderful representative to Abbot when Carol came. 
I wonder what a certain little, vet effective, person will do 
when Carol is no longer around to make her life miserable.

Class Prophecy 



The class of nineteen rhirtv-one 
Went our to sorrow and to fun 
One June day long, long ago: 
Thus what we quote is reallv so: 

Skippie is to Eddie \v>. j J. 
And very happy so she said. 

Kay Allen bv her laugh has fame, 
And all the world now sings her name. 

Mary as all other actresses should 
Is reallv being very good. 

Bac has horses of her own 

From little colts to those full grown. 

Bunnv's written such a book 

That all who pass her turn to look. 

Metta's still attending football games, 
Collecting long lists of men's names. 

Cora runs a tine girl's school 
Where extra week-ends are the rule. 

Em has travelled far away 

Where the world seems always to be May 

Ruthie and Sewie are happy yet; 
There's not a thing that they regret. 

Nancy has long, long hair; 
Thev say she did it on a dare. 

Abbv. a well known comedian, 
Has her own circuit now to run. 



36 



The Ab bot Circle 1931 

Connie runs a big book store 

And's still collecting more and more. 

Faith came out two years ago 
And has a very faithful beau. 

Flora with her mighty voice 
Of any part can have the choice. 

Clem has written a dictionary 

Her extensive knowledge not to bury. 

Bettv Dix conducts a symphony 
Much to her own and others glee. 

Evelyn still goes to school 
And gets A's as is her rule. 

Chubbie is a gay voting thing 

And now she wears a diamond ring. 

Greggie's got two more men 
But she seems undecided again. 

Aud is making them beg for more 
And quite outdoing Ethel Barrymore. 

Carol runs the R.K.O. 

Gives us all a knockout show. 

Dottie Hunt, married at high noon, 
Is still away on her honeymoon. 

Cathie, the artist of the year, 
Plays music to give atmosphere. 

Billie has a little flat; 

Now the boys know where she's ar. 

Ginny's teaching Sunday school 
And says she knows the golden rule. 

37 



T b e Abbot Circl e 1931 

Mary Jane has achieved at last 

The mechanical man desired in the past. 

Charlotte with her gay, red hair 
Can smile and get most anywhere. 

Lizzie runs a small boy's camp 
And still retains the power to vamp. 

Flo. spurning societv as a bore, 
Spends her time in trying to draw. 

Peggie has a pair of twins 

And lives in an atmosphere of dins. 

Carol's writing lots of songs 
And exciting perfect throngs. 

Linda reviews modern books 

From Hugh Walpole to tours bv Cooks. 

Marcia and her famous traps 
Fill in the svmphonic gaps. 

Fran to India has returned 

And from Gandhi manv things has learned. 

Jan is managing societv 

And makes a hit with every he. 

Smeadie now has won her fame 
Bv running in the Olympic Game. 

Dottie publishes a magazine, 
The finest one we've ever seen. 

Gertrude is treasurer of the USA. 
The President savs she's his mainstay. 

Dot Welch goes to all the proms, 
s staying out late never harms.

Nannie to the Army's wed, 
She likes to be the fair co-ed. 

Tommie takes parties to Intervale 
Or teaches youngsters how to sail. 

The Class of 1931 
Went out to sorrow and to fun 
One June day long, long ago 
Thus what we've said is reallv so.

Intervale 

Intervale! It is a magic word with a magic world behind it, one that we had 
heard of but never imagined as the white and perfect land we found. 

We began the moment we arrived with a sleigh ride to the "Bellevue" where we 
were given a, welcome. It didn't take us long to change into our ski-suits but it was a 
long time before we had exclaimed enough over our own and each other's novel out- 
fits. 

There was enough snowshoeing, skating, skiing, "cuttering", trailing and what 
we called "tinpanning" to last us our whole three days. At night some of the more 
venturesome went to North Conway for a soda and a look around while others of us 
went skating, and one night there was a "flap-jack" partv! 

Our morning began with the never to be forgotten sight of the sun coming up over 
the mountains, throwing a pink glow over Mount Washington. Miss Bailey it was 
who introduced us to this novel sport of sun gazing and never before had we seen 
anything so inspiring. 

Then the most exciting climb up Mount Surprise on snow shoes with a bacon bat 
at the end of it in the "Wyehut" up in the woods. We couldn't get enough to eat or 
sing enough songs we were so happy. 

And the moon — Oh that moon! It was a full one and seemed, against the deep 
snow, a kind of special secret to be divulged only to the lucky Seniors of Abbot. 

Our last glimpse was of Mount Washington, glistening pure white with the sun 
just coming up as if to say, "Good morning, so sorry you are leaving". 

But not our last glimpse, no, for Carol has it all, yards and yards of it in her mov- 
ing picture camera, from our train ride up, to the bus that got stuck in the snow by 
Abbot gate, and we all have it under the heading "Wonderful Memories of 1931 ' ' -

Intervale Songs 

(Tune: I've Got Rhythm) 

We went skating, 

We went skiing, 

We had great fun, 

Who could ask for anything more? 

We had pancakes, 

And had lots of aches. 

We had great fun, 

Who could ask for anything morer 

Trains and horses, 

Gains and losses, 

Black and blue marks, 

Lots of gav larks; 

We had moonlight 

And played at night; 

We had great fun, 

Who could ask for anything more? 



(Tune: Nobody's Sweetheart Now) 

Oh the Seniors went away 

For three days of play. 

What we did, where we went 

You ought to know bv the cards we sent. 

Snowshoed and skied and ate, 

You should have seen us skate! 

Private car, whole hotel; - 

Of all our joys we can not tell. 

No callers, still less mail 

And vet we adored Intervale! 



48 



The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 



(Tune: I'm Yours*) 

Do you like to ski, 

And do you like to skate? 

If vou really do, 

Whv then, don't hesitate, 

You will find a place right near vou, 

Go to Intervale. 

Anyone can see 

Just why we loved it so. 

At night the moon looked down 

And bathed us in its glow. 

Everything was simply perfect, 

Up at Intervale. 

And if we look a little tired and weary, 

Please don't ask us whv. 

Memories will always linger 

And perhaps make us sigh— 

For we never can forget the fun we had; 

Thoughts of what we did 

Will make us very glad, 

And we'll always love our days back 

In old Intervale. 



(Tune : Blue Again) 

Blue again, 'cause we're home again, 

And we're oh so blue now we're home again, 

Got to buckle down to work again. 

Sad again, school again, 

After play we've got to work again, 

That's why we're blue again, 

So blue.

Impressions of Intervale 

A jagged line on the ice 
glistening in the soft light 
like a frozen, forgotten 
steel rail. 

Thick, impressive, lonelv pines 
almost panting in their effort 
to he upward; straining 
upward. 

The hauteur of a lofty mountain 
so far away as to seem mist, 

- 

startling in its very whiteness; 
a mirage. 

Echoes of raw, brilliant )azz 
sung to an orange colored moon 
and left on a stiffening wind 
to die.

The Two Ships 

A cloud sailed o'er the deep blue skv 
Like a phantom ship on a lofty sea, 
Bearing ancient treasures from far-off shores 
To the mvstic land to be. 

The cloud changed shape and the ship was gone; 

It faded away with the wind. 

I pondered, "Was that the way of life? 

Was that to be my end?" 

Then another cloud went floating by, 
And as I watched it, more and more 
It took the shape of another ship, 
Far lovelier than that before. 

My heart leapt up; yes, that was the end 
Of all our earthly strife. 
The first ship signified Life and Death, 
The second, Eternal Life.

Bradford Day 

On October 28, Abbot was transported "en Masse" to Bradford for our second 
Play Day. Things started well with singing and the usual rush to find "our girl." 
Atter a few minutes in the girls' rooms, wewent out for the various games. There were 
all sorts of things to do and every one did something. Fate must have been against us 
as it soon began to rain, making it necessarv to cut short the sports scheduled for the 
morning and to call off the afternoon events entirely. Lunch which was to be a barbe- 
que out of doors had to be eaten in the dining room in shifts. It tasted just as good ! We 
spent the afternoon in the gvm dancing, plaving bridge, and singing. In spite of the 
sudden change of plans evervone enjoyed herself and had a good time doing the unex- 
pected. 



Fall Field Day 

The spirit was keen on Gargoyle-Griffin Dav and a close score kept it so to the 
end. The Gargovles met the Griffins and paraded out to the tennis courts where a 
lively game was started. At the same time finals in the minor sports tournaments, 
croquet, golf, archery, deck tennis and ping pong were played off. We used the new 
driving net in golf. First and second teams in basketball showed their skill in good 
games. Both plavers and spectators were whole-heartedly enthusiastic. By this time 
the total score was a tie and each hockey team went out determined to settle the score 
in its own favor. The result was a cleanlv contested game in which the extra practices 
of the season made themselves evident. The final score of the day was 45-35 in favor 
of the Gargovles. In the afternoon the faculty met the teams at tea in the "rec"-room, 
and the same room was in the evening the scene of the awarding of numerals, "A's", 
and chevrons, a fitting conclusion for a happy day.

Year Girls. 

This year with Miss Rebekah Chickering as our very kind and helpful advisor, we 
have had several interesting debates. At our open meeting the question was "Whether 
the United States should join the League of Nations" and is one I'm sure we shall 
never forget and which will also be a help to us in later life.

Senior Play 

THE PROFESSOR'S LOVE STORY" 
By J. M. Barrie 

This love story was made unusually interesting by our two great actresses Miss 
Clement Cruce, who played the part of Professor Tom Goodwillie, and Miss Audrie 
Griffiths, who played the part of Lucy White, his secretary. Flora Collins played the 
part of Dr. Cousens and deserves honorable mention. Being the professor's friend and 
realizing that the professor is in love with Miss White, the doctor advises Goodwillie 
to leave his work and visit his sister at Tullochmaines. Contrary to all expectations, 
the professor leaves — with Miss White at his side. Many serious and amusing situa- 
tions follow before the professor finally realizes his love for Lucy. 

The second act opens in the picturesque wheat-fields at Tullochmaines. Evelvn 
Folk plaved the part of Miss Goodwillie who has been disappointed in love, and 
therefore tries to keep her brother from realizing his love. 

The Dowager, played by Harriet Gregory, imparts to Lucy a brilliant idea of hers 
to make the professor fall in love with her. Up to this point Lucy has not tried to 
make the professor declare his love for her, but now she decides to take the dowager's 
idea. 

The humorous side of the play was brought out bv Dorothy Stevenson, who was 
Effie, the professor's competent maid. Abby Castle as Pete, and Faith Chipman as 
Henders were Effie's two lovers. 

Marie Whitehill as Sir George, the Dowager's stepson, and Dorothy Welch as 
Lady Gilding, his wife, were also amusing characters.

Abbot Dramatic Society Plays 



THE BOY COMES HOME 



On December tenth the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two plays. "The Boy 
Comes Home" by A. A. Milne was a delightful comedy. Philip, the boy, returns from 
the war and immediately the action begins. He put the maid and red-haired, fiery- 
tempered cook right in their places by a few sharp words tinged with humor. He loves 
his sweet gentle aunt but fears his uncle with whom he must soon discuss his plans for 
the future. The uncle, after repeated pleadings from his wife not to be too harsh on the 
boy who may have a will of his own, falls asleep and dreams that his nephew comes in, 
listens to his plans and refuses to obey them. Uncle James tries to scare him into obey- 
ing but is finally made to submit to Philip at the point of a revolver. Still shaking and 
white from his nearness to death James wakes up only to find that it was a dream and 
that Philip is just entering the room after breakfasting and is quite meek and delighted 
to enter business with him. The play was well acted and contained many humorous 
situations.

THE WEDDING PRESENT 

By William Carson 

Bob Gordon, and his wife, Dot, have very recently returned from their honeymoon 
and when the scene opens they are trying to decide what Jim Dixon, a friend who is 
coming for dinner, gave them as a Wedding Present. Dot has lost the list on which she 
had written the people's names. She insists that he gave them a Corot that she has 
taken a fancy to and Bob is sure he gave them the fireless cooker. Many complications 
occur which are extremely funny and in the end Jim confesses that he got his sister to 
buy the present and so doesn't know himself what he gave them. It turns out to be an 
ugly cut glass dish which they all dislike.

"THE FEAST OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS" 

Bv Samuel M. Illsley 

On January the twentieth the Senior-Mid class presented three plays. "The Feast 
of the Holy Innocents" gives the audience a peep into the lives of two very pious 
middle-aged sisters. They want to go to the city to enjoy themselves but are afraid to 
tell each other so. Therefore they say that thev would like to attend the "Feast of the 
Holy Innocents" to be held at the citv church. They really can't make up their minds 
for thev can't afford it, when Mrs. Oberlv comes in, a typical country woman, and 
lends them the money. Even then they are in doubt but the sudden arrival of Mrs. 
Oman their citv friend, who insists that thev go back with her, puts an end to their 
worries and off they go. The parts were well acted and the play was very interesting.

"THE LONDONDERRY AIR" 

Bv Rachel Field 

"The Londonderry Air" is a simple love story of a little country hired-out girl 

and a traveling peddler who plays the fiddle very well. The maiden, Rose-Martha, is 

betrothed to a slow, easy-going farmer boy, Hiram, who takes her very much for 

granted. She is working for the widow Boggs, Hiram's mother. She and her son have 

gone to a funeral and during their absence the peddler comes to the door, begs some of 

the cookies from Rose-Martha that she's cooking, and a pretty and sweet love scene 

follows which is interrupted by the widow and Hiram. Rose-Martha is to join the 

peddler when she hears his fiddle in the fields that night if she has decided to marry 

him. She tries to forget but her young heart craves love and she can't resist when she 

finally hears his fiddle so, casting cares to the wind she goes out into the twilight to 

him.

THE SHEPHERD IN THE DISTANCE" 
By Holland Hudson 
This play was entirely different from the others for it was all pantomime. The 
Princess sees, through a telescope, a shepherd and his goat dancing in the distance. She- 
decides to go to him and so hides her time until her guardians, the Vizar and Wazir, are 
asleep. Then she makes her escape. On the road she passes Ghurri-Wurri, a beggar, to 
whom she gives but a small gold piece. He seeks revenge by telling her guardians and 
leading them to her. Alight with the shepherd follows while she escapes on the goat. 
The shepherd is taken to the castle and put in chains. The princess and goat finally free 
hi m by a little scheme of the faithful old goat. The princess fascinates the guardians 
by her dancing and then poisons them while the goat frees her lover. And as in all fairy 
stories they were married and lived happily ever after. Every movement in the panto- 
mime was accompanied by the cymbals of the Maker of Sounds which added very 
much to the fairy-like atmosphere.

What's in a Name 

In a sparselv populated corner of IRELAND was an old CASTLE. It stood on the 
edge of a MOORE, not far from the turn-PIKE. In days gone by a KING had lived 
there but now it was deserted. Children often came to the PLACE to HUNT for the 
ghost which they were sure must be CLOSE by. After a long HUNT they gathered in 
the big HALL to talk things over. One dav thev heard a CARR drive up and a voice 
sav, "TURNER in here." A man in a BROWN suit knocked on the door which had a 
verv heavy BOLTON it. The frightened children let him in. He asked, "'CANN vou 
tell me just where I am and HOWE I can find the nearest town?" They started to direct 
him but he interrupted them, 

"I have been lost all day with nothing to eat and I am very hungry. I am sure 
one of vou must be a good COOK. Couldn't you fix me up something?" 

The children were able to GRANT his request as they had caught some BASS 
which thev served with strips of BACON. While he ate he told them about himself. 
He was a WELCHman and a WEAVER by trade. He had come to IRELAND for a 
vacation. When his hosts told him about their ghost he took them up in the TOWER 
and pointing out a WHITEHILL in the distance said, 

"I have been told that there is a ghost in an old COLE mine over there. Why don't 
vou FOLK try to find it?" 

Thev agreed so readily that he could not help laughing. He added, "Will you 
WRIGHT me what luck you have?" 

Thev promised and he drove awav but not before he had distributed several 
NICHOLS. As soon as he was out of hearing the children began to talk about him. 
"Wasn't he a HOWELL?" exclaimed one. "Yes," answered a second. "Who could 
he have been?" 

"Oh never mind that, do you think it WORTHwhile to visit the mine?" said the 
first. 

Thev decided that it was. 



Mary Bacox 



Breakfast 



First a bell, and then a scurry. 
Next a bath and then more hurrv. 
Here's one shoe, but where's the other? 
Hair won't do. Oh, what a bother! 
Down the hall with quickening feet, 
Heavens! They've begun to eat.

Tale of a Tub 

Always ask somebody to start your tub for you — never do it yourself, it's )ust not 
done; just call to anyone at the opposite end of the corridor, the corridor teachers en- 
joy hearing the girls having a good time. Now that vour tub is started, you have time 
to do a few of the little things that you have been putting off: write a letter, or file 
vour nails, or go visiting perhaps; you have plentv of time. 

Finally you decide to go up to see if the tub is anywhere near running over -it is ! 
Just sliding over the side is a thin stream of water. You stand in the middle of the 
room in glee. What fun! 

When Miss Butterfield arrives ask her to go play with the sail boats with you 
which you have made out of paper towels. Do anything to prevent her asking who did 
it and how much it is going to be. Don't bother to mop up the wet, just let it soak 
through down below; the faculty especially enjoy it down below on the first floor. 

Linda Rolling 



How to Act When Receiving Callers 

When you first hear the voices and foot steps of your callers on Friday nights 
outside of Draper Hall, it is then time to put on your evening gown and high heeled 
shoes. Of course there is little to be done as far as make-up goes, as vou have spent 
study hour in carefully applying powder, rouge, lipstick, and most important of all — 
eye-brow pencil! 

After your caller has been announced, go immediatelv to the drawing room and 
greet him. It is now up to your guest to decide the next step; that is, if he had rather 
sit in the McKeen Rooms and smoke than go dancing in the ball room where there is 
always a good orchestra. You should agree with his choice. 

In the course of the evening there are various things to do. For instance, during 
intermission one is sure to be highly entertained by the Abbot chorus girls who are 
exceptionally well trained in specialty dances. Also elaborate refreshments are served 
in the faculty parlor throughout the evening. 

Sometimes between dances it is pleasant to go out on the senior porch which has 
recently been refurnished and glassed in. 

If, however, you decide to go dancing or to one of the main Lawrence theatres, it 
is absolutely necessarv that everyone be back by one o'clock. The facultv have con- 
sidered the strictness of this rule, and, although perhaps it is a bit old fashioned 
sounding, they think it best for the regulation to be strictly observed.

Parting Hymn 



Father. I know that all my I 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see; : 
But I ask Thte for a present mind 

Intent on pleasin? Thee 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise. 

To meet the glad with jovful smiles. 
: And to wipe the weeping eves; : 

And a heart at leisure from itself. 
To sooth and svmpathize. 

W herever in the world I am. 

In whatso'er estate. 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied. 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: \\ hile keeping at Thv side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.
